    During my second stint in ATL, we went to a couple Gladiator games. Saw Chris Higgins and Jason Lawrence play. Higgins dominated one of the games.

    Pretty sure it's a well known fact that using plus/minus as an indicator of defensive skill summarily eliminates your opinion from serious consideration. hth

    Charlie has work to do defensively but is a physical specimen and adds to the offense...probably wouldn't be a -1 with a different partner ..believe he was something like a +17 last year with Grizz...thanks for making my point

    A supposed BU supporter taking on fans and a freshman player. Right. Nice try. Go back to the comments section of the Freep (which is, I believe, where we saw you last).
    P.S. Sorry to the rest of you if this post came up twice. It did not seem to register the first time.

    Hey! Welcome back! You haven't posted here in forever.

    And yeah, n00b is a bit troubling. He's no Jofa, though! 😀

    So here is a question for season ticket holders....

    It is great that they give us an opportunity to post tickets that we can't use on the ticket exchange, but, where does one go if they want to buy tickets off of the exchange? The only way I can find a link to see what is for sale is through the Agganis website after I log into my account. So if someone is not a season ticket holder, how do you access those tickets? I can't find a link anywhere to get to that.

    Actually, he was +10, but don't worry yourself; +10, +17, whats the difference, right? After all, looking up the stats is so very difficult. By the way, after BU played 19 games last year McAvoy was a -2.

    Took a quick look and looks like you can just click on the "Click here to purchase premium tickets from season ticket holders." link at the login page.

    I kinda like Krys. He's not awesome; I think he will be a three-year player and he has definitely made a few mistakes here and there, but he's not incompetent. As a group, I think the defensemen have been pretty poor in their own end all season. He's certainly no worse than anyone else. Not sure why he is being singled out here?

    True. On both accounts.

    My thoughts exactly.
    It's just as serious as you're willing to take it.

    Interesting, so you have to go to the login page to access it.... they sure don't promote the ticket exchange very well! (I guess they want to sell other unsold tickets first). Would be nice if they made it easier to find!

    There used to be a tab on the Agganis/Ticketmaster page when you went to order single game tickets (same screen as the seating bowl map.) At some point in the last few years that tab was removed. Probably as you surmise they don't want the competition. I used it when I lived in Vermont from 07-10 and the tickets I put on there didn't sell often. I would say it is virtually useless in its current form.

    I have to keep up with the players that got my team's coach a WJC gold medal.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.
